Jose Mourinho has stressed the importance of his Tottenham players getting used to empty stadiums.
Spurs are set to resume their Premier League campaign against Manchester United next Friday night.
Mourinho’s men played Norwich in a friendly at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Friday to get a feel for playing in their cavernous home without the backing of their fans, with the match divided into four periods of 30 minutes to give more players the chance to get some meaningful game time.
In an interview with the club, Mourinho said:
“We needed minutes, we needed to know the feeling of playing here without our supporters. It was a good training session.
“We have to adapt to this new reality, which is what we tried to do, to have a feeling of playing with an empty stadium.”
Harry Kane, Moussa Sissoko, Son Heung-Min and Steven Bergwijn were all involved, having recovered from injury during the season’s suspension.
